He's put up monster years in the past. He's a career .401 OBP! Not to mention he has arguably the best 1-2 duo in the Majors in front on him to drive home.

Am I supposed to penalize him for cheating on his wife?


He must of cheated on her with you if you are ranking him that high. :-[

I think it's safe to assume 3B is deeper this year than ever before and even if you get the 8th one picked - you're still getting a stud batter. I think because of that I might just bump them all down a mark. I just realized when i saw this list how incredibly deep this is.

Bad, sure, but "positively awful" is a bit strong, no?

this is not my rankings but yet a combined effort from many of the cafe's brethren. When ever I come across a set of rankings, it goes into Excell and then I use a pivot table to average it out ..


1 Alex Rodriguez NYY
2 Scott Rolen STL
3 Adrian Beltre SEA
4 Eric Chavez OAK
5 Aubrey Huff TB
6 Hank Blalock TEX
7 Aramis Ramirez CHC
8 Chipper Jones ATL
9 Melvin Mora BAL
10 Mike Lowell FLA
11 David Wright NYM
12 Troy Glaus ARI

Chipper isn't supposed to hit like Mike Cameron. That was an awful year for him. He should be getting 100/25-30/100/.300. Everything but the HRs was below his norms, and some well below like the runs and average, so I would call that positively awful.

I really really hope Melvin Mora continues to fall so far. Nothin better than getting a top 10 hitter in the 5th rd. ;-D
